Traditionallyl, marrying in the Philippines is a public event. It means, it is always expected that the couple will invite every one from his and her parents and relatives, friends, officemates, groupmates, even acquaintances. This is why when couples plan to marry, their actual wedding expenses almost always overshoot the budget. Thankfully though, things are changing. Younger generation are more choosy on whom to invite, where to wed and where to hold their wedding reception. It's more practical.
